Miller Williams’ Patterns of Poetry is an encyclopedia of the forms used by poets throughout the history of English, from blank verse to hymnal measure, from englyn penfyr to the double dactyl, from the clerihew to the sonnet. Each form is introduced with a brief discussion of its origin, which is followed by a graphic presentation of its scansion, metrics, and rhyme scheme. Sample poems show how each form actually works.

Miller Williams' Patterns of Poetry is an encyclopedia of the forms used by poets throughout the history of English, from blank verse to hymnal measure, from englyn penfyr to the double dactyl, from the clerihew to the sonnet. Williams begins Patterns of Poetry with an introduction entitled "Form and the Age," in which he traces the history of form in the arts and the ways in which any form relates to the political, social, and religious temper of the period in which it becomes dominant. He then prefaces the main text with useful notes on rhyme, prosodic symbols, the major feet, metrics, and nonce forms.

Good book but a bit dense. Enjoyed being introduced to some new forms and some good information about old forms. Good book, overall.
Avarm
Williams provides excellent information on a wide variety of forms, but the poems he chooses as illustrations rarely rise above competence and would hardly encourage beginning writers to launch out as formal poets.
elektron
To write great poetry one MUST learn about the "science" of poetry. Forcing oneself to operate with in the confines of a form is excellent practice.

This is a short review, as time is of the essence right now. Miller Williams has written an excellent book on poetic forms. He doesn't include ALL possible forms, but he includes the major forms, and gives good explanations of how the forms can be worked, and great examples of poems written IN the forms. If you are a poet and want to expand your repertoire, this is the book for you.
